Older version was better The older version could set wallpaper automatically. I cannot access settings in this version. Whenever i try to access setting the app crashes.

Mostly useless App frequently crashes most images do not display properly, if at all. Better to use the NASA app as all the APOD images are there.

Not working HTC One Downloaded it and was excited because I've used this wonderful app previously! App opens and I ask it to search from the menu, it shows it checking in notification bar for about two seconds and then nothing :-(

No longer works For a while now my app has been receiving no updates. Did a fresh install of it and no pictures there at all. Installing g it on a hudl though works fine, so somewhere it's been broken for Android version maybe

Neat app for an awesome website. I saw two issues - Browsing the archive goldmine is difficult & no control on wallpaper display. Please add a calendar to browse archive.
